CENTURY MEDIA U.S. Office Celebrates 15-Year Anniversary, Plans Catalog Reissues
To celebrate the anniversary, Century Media documents the past while pioneering the future. Commissioning a unique logo for its official releases and communications (as above) the label signifies the anniversary’s importance. In the coming months Century Media plans new studio efforts from label heavyweights such as LACUNA COIL and SHADOWS FALL, and also to reissue early albums from artists who have helped shape their current distinctive image like: NEVERMORE, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, THE GATHERING, ICED EARTH, MOONSPELL and STUCK MOJO. These reissued CDs will contain reworked artwork, new liner notes with artist comments, and bonus tracks. Passionately expressing songs with images, Century Media artists have been creating videos from the label’s onset and two different DVD sets will be forthcoming chronicling these efforts. First off is “Century Overload” 2-discs exploding with Century Media‘s more recent talent delivering musically as well as visually. The discs include over 60 different recently released videos from our current roster including GOD FORBID, NAPALM DEATH, ARCH ENEMY, LACUNA COIL and more. Due to incessant demand Century Media has compiled their three out-of-print VHS collections, highlighting the company’s first dozen years, and combined them into their second DVD set the 2-DVD release, entitled “The Visual Experience”. Finally, Century Media artists themselves have also contributed special recordings for a CD whose nature will be announced at a later date.
The flagship label of The Century Family, Century Media Records was founded in 1988. Its American branch opened three years later. With nine offices around the globe, the label employs more than 150 people worldwide. Featuring a rich catalog, the label’s leading artists today include SHADOWS FALL, LACUNA COIL, GOD FORBID, ARCH ENEMY and NEVERMORE.
